Almost Entirely Overrated, At Times.

Sometimes I don’t want to be myself.

Sometimes I like to take a break from being me.

I think that some people are so obsessed with “being themselves” that they actually end up negating themselves.

I am playful by nature. Mischief is fun!
Sometimes, when I am being introduced to a stranger, I cannot help but pretend to be someone other than me.

I have told people that I am a mango farmer.
…that I am an artist…
that I am on day release.

Have you?

It is not that I am unhappy with who I am.
It’s like taking a tiny holiday from me. Just for a moment.
Just for the memory.

I think that even the most “realest” person should be a little “unreal” sometimes.
We shouldn’t take ourselves to seriously.
It’s absurd.

We all have masks.
Today mine was black and glittery.
The thing is; no matter what charade I play at.
I always wind up letting “me” slip through.
I can’t help it.

give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth”
